  • AA Automation Co-Pilot branding updates (#7888)

Changes Required for Invalid Integration Configurations

Some previous versions of PixieBrix did not properly validate Integration Configuration fields.

In the 1.8.11 release, integration configurations containing invalid values will now correctly throw an error when authenticating an API request.

If you are impacted, update the configuration for the integration (See Configuring Integrations).

Known impacted integration configuration fields:

  • Automation Anywhere Control Room:

    • Folder Id: if you want to exclude the folder id, click field toggle and select "Exclude". Blank is not a valid value for Folder Id.

If you have questions or need assistance, please reach out to [email protected] or message in the Community Slack.
